Peterborough United co-owner and chairman,Darragh MacAnthony has insisted that Harry Kane’s reputation has not taken a blow despite the striker’s alleged behaviour this summer.
According to reports, Kane did not report back to Hotspur Way from his summer holiday when he was expected to in an attempt to force through a move to Manchester City.
Kane insisted earlier this week that his conscience is clear and that he does not believe his reputation has been harmed despite the way in which the transfer sage played out.
MacAnthony agreed with the striker’s assessment and insisted that Tottenham fans will be happy to forget the whole ordeal if the England captain continues banging in the goals.
Watch what the Peterborough chairman told Sky Sports on transfer deadline day regarding the gentlemen’s agreement Kane had with Levy and Tottenham’s refusal to sell the player:
🗣 "If Harry Kane wins the golden boot this year, Spurs fans won't care, if he scores 10 goals for England, football fans won't care. You don't lose your reputation because of a big transfer saga."@DMAC102 take on Harry Kane's transfer saga this summer #DeadlineDay pic.twitter.com/Wm8XDagFBR

Spurs Web Opinion
While Tottenham fans are understandably happy that Kane stayed, there is certainly a sense among the fan base that the relationship is no longer as special as it once was following the striker’s antics this summer.
However, as we have seen with similar cases in the past with the likes of Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney, I think Kane will win back the fans quite quickly if he continues giving his all for the shirt.
